doesn't tell us exactly which ones. kind of like they've accused mitt romney of doing. when we made that assertion, we looked hard through the entire campaign website like any voter would do to find the information. we couldn't find it. now, the campaign took issue with our comment, saying our equating their lack of detail on loopholes to mitt romney's was a false equivalency, so they sent us details this afternoon. more accurately, they sent us the president's 2013 budget tables. and they say -- i guess if this one year is a reflection of everything the president would do for the next four years, then it's fair. they gave us the loopholes. the tables of their 2013 budget submitted in february are right here, starting on page 15 of 30, after devoting 14 pages to taking aim at the gop plan. but does it add up to the president's plan of cutting $4 trillion from the debt? well, no. the nonpartisan, cbo, analyzed this budget and concluded, and i'll quote them, over the 2013 to 2022 period, the cumulative deficit that would result from enacting the president's budget, $6.4 trillion, or more t

mitt romney, he wants to spend $2 trillion more on the military than the military wants to spend. he wants to give tax breaks to people at the very top, billionaires, millionaires, you name it. he doesn't want to take away tax breaks from people who ship jobs overseas. so he has no plan whatsoever. so one could argue that the president's $4 trillion plan will be tough to do. he's a man of his word. when he says something, he does it. >> all right. thank you very much, senator. we appreciate your coming on and making the case for him tonight. thanks for your time. and still to come, mitt romney played it cool while president obama was on the attack last night. which style won your vote? >>> plus, the two candidates squared off on the threat of a nuclear weapon. one candidate says it's about capability. the other about actually having the weapon. does that difference matter? >>> and sent to prison for what six scientists did days before a devastating earthquake. does that add up? of our world challenge with the cadillac ats. this is actually starting to feel real now.
